was where is the substance mr. romney? is that a good debate just throwing around a lot of comments. and i didn't think the spt taking credit for some of the things he's doing. and the second comment i is minority voters are scared of the i.d. i would like to see if you would comment on how you're polling and if you're involved with any of the hispanic leadership about making sure the vote gets out? >> i disagree with the first part. i thought it was a more subs stan tive debate i've seen in a while. and i was watching some of the meters and when romney was going through his five point plan, his numbers went straight up. i thought -- i don't think it was vague, i thought it was a lot of substance. >> it was the most substive debate i can remember in terms of plans in a long time. maybe the bar is set so low it's not hard to get over but i was kind of surprised. >> i guess what is substance these days, especially in the modern debate or communications? i guess my summation would be you had a very good sense of these two yes's philosophy and approach to government. and substance will save it
romney? >> thank you, jim, and mr. president, and thank you for tune in this evening. i'm concerned about the american -- about the direction america has taken over the last four years. i know this is bigger than the two of us and our respective parties. if it's about what kind of america and you want to have for yourself and your children. there are two different paths that we began speaking about this evening. we will have to deal more presidential debates. they lead in different directions. it's not just looking into our words. you can look at the record. there's no question that if the president were to be reelected, you would continue to see the middle class squeezed. i will get in comes up again. you will see chronic unemployment. we have had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. i will help create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes. obamacare would be fully installed if the president were reelected. that would mean a different way of life for people who counted on the insurance plan they had in the past. many will lose it. health premiums would go up o
to really listen to what mr. romney said about this economy. if you are concerned about poverty, do you know that the number one group tracked in poverty is single thing all households -- single female soul? you need to look at stuff that the conservatives are saying because they care about the portrait they don't want people trapped in poverty. they know what small businesses, which employs 60-70% of the citizens and in this country, taxed more. if you tax small business, they are not going to hire. i don't know how you don't figure out what mr. romney so eloquently said in that debate. talking about politics of the 1% or the 47%, conservatives want the best for all folks, and yes, we mean thewe don't want them trapped in poverty. we want them married, paying their taxes -- host: we will get katrina vanden heuvel's response. guest: yeah. listen, if marriage will promote the well-being of the couple, children, great. but in my mind, it is and not just that. that is too simplistic. it is part of the equation. without good jobs, without ensuring that workers have rights and a time -- at the ti

their points. mr. romney did look a little frustrated a few times. i likened him to a pit bull on a beach trying to get loose. he did make his points. i agree with him on bayous. the democratic party -- i do not agree with their bad uses some. >> looking at the body language on the guys, it felt like they were full of crap. they keep avoiding the real issues. >> i have a visceral reaction tonight. the whole time romney was talking, i would say how? how? he wanted to say how he would do this stuff. he did not tell us how. it was extremely frustrating. >> obama did not mention anything about china. he skirted a lot of the questions. he was never direct and to the point. he was already -- always tried to attack mitt. mitt seem to be confident. i believe mitt said it every other time. number one i did this, number 2 we are doing that. we will have a very good debate sessions coming up in the near future. i hope it pulls through. >> i thought both candidates did a good job. i was more impressed with the president, and because of that, i am getting off the fence and going with the president. th

[applause] center brady, his running mate, in his failed bid to become lieutenant governor, released his tax returns. he did not pay any federal income tax for two years. what is it that mr. plummer has not paid? >> mr. palmer? >> i will answer the question. if you look and what is happening right now in the united states, if you look at what is happening, you have politicians of both polos -- part is not being honest with the voters. the bush tax cuts -- i will call of the obama tax cuts because they supported the extension. we have a tax code that is more than 72,000 pages, and grows every year. it does the group because it is getting better. it grows because connected individuals and businesses can figure out to create loopholes and deductions. the u.s. constitution is less than 10 pages, th
talk about romney or obama that they generally fill in a lot of things that are off color about romney but nothing whatsoever about mr. obama. everyone has dropped his middle name, you know? hussein. it just seems like he gets a lot of support, whether it's intended or not. host: a lot of facebook comments already on this topic. we will begin with melvin. the lame stream media are a bunch of obama lackeys. those are some of our facebook comments this morning. if you would like to continue the conversation on this topic, facebook.com/cspan. here's "the wall street journal" this morning. swing states a tough sell for romney. according to "the wall street journal"/nbc poll, obama leads in nevada 49% to 47% and in new hampshire and north carolina. two of the three states both think romney a strong run the economy. that is one set of polls. now we have this other set we want to show you quickly. this is from rasmussen. they do a daily tracking poll. for a long time now, they have been showing this race as even. this gets updated daily at about 9:30 a.m. they have obama and romney both up 46
